Thumbs up SOLVED: Fluxbox 0.9.4: trouble with key-bindings...?


I have to just recently used Fluxbox 0.1.14 and had these keybindings working:
Code:
[eek@apeekaboo eek]$ cat .fluxbox/keys
Mod1 Tab :NextWindow 7
Control Mod1 Tab :PrevWindow 7
Mod1 Shift Tab :NextTab
Control Shift Mod1 Tab :PrevTab
Mod1 m :ShadeWindow
Mod1 w :MaximizeWindow
Mod1 l :Lower
Mod1 r :Raise
Control Mod1 Shift Mod4 k :KillWindow
Control Mod1 Shift m :Minimize
Mod1 F1 :Workspace1
Mod1 F2 :Workspace2
Mod1 F3 :Workspace3
Mod1 F4 :Workspace4
Mod1 F5 :Workspace5
Mod1 F6 :Workspace6
Mod1 F7 :Workspace7
Mod1 F8 :Workspace8
Mod1 F9 :Workspace9
Mod1 F10 :Workspace10
Mod1 F11 :Workspace11
Mod1 F12 :Workspace12
Mod1 f :ExecCommand gnome-commander
Mod1 v :ExecCommand gvim
Mod1 x :ExecCommand gnome-terminal --geometry 80x30
Mod1 Shift x :ExecCommand xterm -fg white -bg black
Control Mod1 x :ExecCommand Eterm -O
Mod1 n :ExecCommand cd mydox/_D_o_k_u_m_e_n_t_/ && gedit
Mod4 s :ExecCommand /usr/bin/3ddesk --mode=flip --reload
Mod4 q :ExecCommand quickrun -p center -c 20
Mod1 d :ToggleDecor
Mod1 t :ToggleTab
Control Shift k :VerticalIncrement
Control Shift i :VerticalDecrement
Control Shift l :HorizontalIncrement
Control Shift j :HorizontalDecrement
When I upgraded to Fluxbox 0.9.4, the key-bindings for changing desktops stopped working... (Mod1 F1 :Workspace1-12)
I've tried with other key-bindings to change desktops but it seems like Workspace1 and so on is not supported anymore...?
The last 4 entries for changing window size seem to be broken as well...
Desktop wheeling is working, but sometimes I prefer to use the keyboard instead.

Any Suggestions would be appreciated.

Add a space between Workspace and the number. I guess it saves time and memory to only keep track of the changing number rather than the constant string 'Workspace' with the number tacked on.
Read the Changelog and NEWS files.

I think a recent cvs update has fixed the keybindings
See Changelog and BUGS.

Thanks Proud!
Quick answers are always good... especially if they have a working solution!

Only for the desktop problem...

The other problem with resizing isn't really an important one, and it was something I just happened to notice while examining the first problem.
I only use it for those rare cases when a program is opened outside of the desktop.

But if anyone have a solution for it I'm all ears! Just don't break a sweat over it...

I've been having a problem with the keybindings as well, and I don't see a solution in the changelog. The following keybindings do not work:

Code:
# Move active window (more)
Shift Mod1 Up :BigNudgeUp
Shift Mod1 Down :BigNudgeDown
Shift Mod1 Left :BigNudgeLeft
Shift Mod1 Right :BigNudgeRight

# Move active window (less)
Control Shift Mod1 Up :NudgeUp
Control Shift Mod1 Down :NudgeDown
Control Shift Mod1 Left :NudgeLeft
Control Shift Mod1 Right :NudgeRight

# Make active window taller/shorter
Mod1 Mod4 Down :VerticalIncrement
Mod1 Mod4 Up :VerticalDecrement

# Make active window fatter/skinnier
Mod1 Mod4 Right :HorizontalIncrement
Mod1 Mod4 Left :HorizontalDecrement
I've googled this too, and can't seem to find anything about this. When I exit X, however, I see several messages saying that I am referencing an invalid keybind. I'm assuming that they have changed the names of these keybindings, or maybe they are just broken at this time. Does anyone know for sure, though?

Thanks guys. I had same problem (no keybindings after upgrading to Fluxbox 0.9.8) and the space trick worked. In additon, I needed to point /etc/X11/fluxbox/keys to /usr/local/share/fluxbox/keys as the version in /etc had old keys definitions. (if only I had looked in ~/.xsession-errors file ...)

thanks, nram

Shift Mod1 Right :BigNudgeRight           < MoveRight +number

# Move active window (less)
Control Shift Mod1 Up :NudgeUp            < same as above, 
Control Shift Mod1 Down :NudgeDown            using smaller numbers
Control Shift Mod1 Left :NudgeLeft
Control Shift Mod1 Right :NudgeRight

# Make active window taller/shorter
Mod1 Mod4 Down :VerticalIncrement         < ResizeVertical +number
Mod1 Mod4 Up :VerticalDecrement           < ResizeVertical -number

# Make active window fatter/skinnier              
Mod1 Mod4 Right :HorizontalIncrement      < ResizeHorizontal +number
Mod1 Mod4 Left :HorizontalDecrement       < ResizeHorizontal -number
You could also use MoveUp -number instead of MoveDown +number
